There is currently a possibility of creating an injection that allows you to burn fat without going to the gym or doing any exercise, as reported by the portal Medical Express. This would be possible thanks to a recent study to reduce abdominal fat during physical effort, focused on the role that the interleukin-6 (IL-6) protein plays in this process.
The authors of the research – whose results were published in the scientific journal Cell metabolism– tried to explain the role of IL-6, a molecule produced by skeletal muscles during exercise, which acts as a chemical messenger in the immediate vicinity, regulating energy metabolism and stimulating fracture of fats in healthy people.
To test this hypothesis, experts progressed with an experiment over a 12-week period involving 53 adult obese patients who were divided into two groups: some received intravenous infusion of tocilizumab (blocking IL-6 signals ), while others received a placebo saline solution.
Subsequently, the two types of participants were divided into subgroups: some had to conduct a bicycle routine with several sessions of 45 minutes per week, while others did not perform any exercise.
The results showed that members of the placebo group who had reduced visceral fat averaged 225 grams, corresponding to 8%. While tocilizumab changed this effect, those who received this medication even increased the amount of fat by 278 grams.
